Cento Poetry Showcase

In collaboration with Lift Every Voice: Why African American Poetry Matters Today & the Library of America, the Cento Poetry Showcase on CALS social media amplifies the voices of black authors by utilizing quotes from original works & knitting them together to create entirely new poems. Explore CALS reading lists & collection to find new ways of writing and thinking. Titles and the authors of the original works will be credited in the showcase. Submissions begin October 9th & run through November 9th.
